“RESURRECTION OF THE SON OF THE WIDOW OF NAIN”. SECOND STATE, Printed in G. de Jode’s monumental Thesaurus Novi Testamenti, 1585. Conceptual Artist: Gerard van Groenning. Engraver: Johannes Wierix. Publisher: Gerard de Jode. Reference: New Hollstein 73.2 (Groenning). Image cut to plate and pasted onto heavier laid paper, 10.2″ x 8.2″; full margins 13″ x 10″. A clean and sharp impression, lightly “washed” to simulate antiquity (a normal process). No. 77 in pen, within the plate line, bottom right. A fine example of Netherlandish engraving in its heyday, nicely detailed. The scene is from the story in Luke 7.
Engraving and COA set in a large museum-quality Bifold Portfolio of linen cloth and silk moire, within archival sleeves; COA on premium “gold leaf” paper with gold seal and signature.
If purchased in conjunction with “Resurrection of Lazarus,” the two engravings will be set in a landscape portfolio, and the COAs set in a Bifold Portfolio. Total for the set: $800.
